Perfect Day

Today I've the honour of being a guest designer at Scrapping4Fun.  Their theme this time is Fall Colours.

I'd recently won some images from StarStampz and this one is just perfect for the theme - its called Autumn Fall Girl Reading


I've coloured the image with Copics and a little polychromos pencil creating a CAS card.


All I've done is added a little biro to give it a border and used a wood chip sentiment.  This wood chip sentiment was coloured with Copic.

Snow n ice

It's reminder time at Oddball Art Challenge blog.  Not many people have entered so I thought I'd give you a little more "Circles" inspiration

I love this image (number 138) you can get him and any of Lizzy's images with 10% off by quoting DTANDREA10 at checkout

I've used ProMarkers and a little polychromos pencil to give him this frosty look.

A single layer creation I've added some snowtext, done some doodling with biro to give it a border, used some white glitter letters for the sentiments and added a few sliver snowflake charms to complete the look

Hope this has given you some inspiration for circles ;)

Don't cry sweetie


I coloured the image with a combination of ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils
The image and all the design papers were distressed.  I've used paper from Lemoncraft and some black card stock.

The sentiment comes with the image :D

The embellishments I've used are some chip board elements from Scrapienic, a couple of heart stickers from Paperchase and some black gems.

Pop over to the main blog for the rest of the design team inspiration

Warm hands

Here's a little inspiration for you for the All Dressed Up new release images.


I've used ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils to colour this image.

She's then been cut out with a Spellbinders die and I've used some antique linen and vintage photo ink to distress it.

Below is a close up of the flower arrangement, this is a combination of flowers from The Ribbon Girl, Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts.  the pin from The Ribbon Girl and the wood chip is a Christmas embellishment from Scrapeinic.


Other embellishments used are some tiny wooden hearts which I've had in my stash for ever (think I got them at the Glitter Pot), a metal corner (this one was a Santoro one) and some brown organza rose trim from Lemoncraft.

All the design paper are hand cut and are from Dovecraft, Santoro and First Edition.


We also have a Facebook challenge which is themed Pretty Pastels this month

Hope to see you there :D

PAWS!!!

New sketch challenge at Outlawz today - here I've used Bella from DigiStamps4Joy, our sponsor for the month.

I've coloured Bella using Copics with a little black polychromos pencil for extra shading.  Hopefully I've achieved a shaggy dog look :D

The image and paper she's been mounted on were cut with Spellbinders dies.

Here's our sketch for today


I've altered mine slightly and just used two lines of ribbon instead - mainly coz I've been dying to use this PAWS ribbon which I got from Crafty Ribbons.

The design papers are from Joy Crafts and Maja Design

No embellishments at all, just nice and simple to showcase the image

Hope to see you at the challenge

Rocket Man

Here's one I've made for my dad.  Guy cards are so hard to do but I think I did ok here.

I've used Rocket Man from Bloobel Stamps.


I've added a sentiment to him before printing him and then coloured it with Copics.  I've tried to give an impression of movement by the trails of grey to the left of the image.

The embellishments are metal charms I won from Though the Craft Room Door a long time ago.

To finish the card off I've just doodled a border :D
